The Sarah Connor Chronicles

I'm not sure how good this is going to be, but it starts tomorrow on Fox. (I'll be watching the downloaded show later due to lack of cable.) Summer from Firefly is in it, so I have to check it out for that alone. I loved the first two Terminator movies, but without James Cameron, the third one sucked. I hope this has nothing to do with that train-wreck of a movie, but it probably does.

NYC - We have the toilet of the future, today!


That actually sounds very cool, except for the missing seat and the door remaining open for a full 30 seconds.

I wonder how long it will take people to start using them as spots for "quickies" with a hooker?

A PC made of corn!


It's not 100% corn, in fact, it's mostly plastic. But it is cool that they are starting to use materials that pollute less.

The TV show Eureka used a case made mostly out of potatoes when it released on DVD in 2007.

My only concern with the use of biodegradable materials is whether or not my DVD case or PC will still be around in 10 or 20 years. I mean, it's degradable.

Guitar Woes

I had to return my shiny new guitar. I'm sad.

OK, not really. Sad, that is. I did have to return it. The low E string buzzed on the frets, and - more importantly - my right wrist does not appreciate strumming a pick on the guitar strings. It lets me know that it doesn't appreciate it by causing me extreme pain. Weighing pain versus my desire to screw around on the guitar, I decided to return the guitar. I need my wrist to be pain free for a lot of other activities, so guitar-playing is right out. (Yeah, yeah, insert your pathetic masturbation jokes here. Ha. Ha.)

To Be Honest

It makes me nuts when people use this phrase, as they just have no clue how it is supposed to be used. I see it being used all the time when people are presenting an opinion. "To be honest, WoW is an EQ clone." What? Did the current generation all fail high school English?

I looked up the meaning of the original phrase, but I was more amused by what the folks at Urban Dictionary had to say about it:

To be Honest tbh
1. To be Honest

an incredibly over-used refuge for the inarticulate to máke a point of statement. Can be used in any sentence as long as you agree with yourself.

i really don't like to stick pineapples up my be honest. But have you tried a cucumber?

2. to be honest

Absolutely pointless statement, that adds nothing to any conversation it is included in. Used by dumbasses to sound "smarter" or "prove a point".Also see: to be
, frankly, honestly

To be honest, I'm full of bullshit.
